This week’s cool form displays your local weather forecast by using a REST Web Service data connection to pull in weather information from an online weather service. There are two views to the form, one minimal and one extended. The form contains linked picture controls that use rules to concatenate the Web service data and generate a URL pointing to images on the weather site. By hosting this form inside the InfoPath form Web part, you can display the latest weather forecast information on your SharePoint portal pages.
For more information about using REST Web Service data connections with InfoPath forms, see our earlier blog post http://blogs.msdn.com/infopath/archive/2010/02/11/add-a-dynamic-map-to-a-contact-form-using-rest-web-services.aspx.

This issue has now been resolved. Thanks for flagging it and let us know if you're e-mails are still bouncing.
Nice. Feel free to remove hole thread about email.
Is the XSN available for this form?
The XSN is not available but you can find instructions for connecting to REST Web services from InfoPath forms in the following post- http://blogs.msdn.com/infopath/archive/2010/02/11/add-a-dynamic-map-to-a-contact-form-using-rest-web-services.aspx.
If you have specific questions about how to do this, please let us know.
Can I actually download this form from somewhere. Would be really useful in a Infopath WebPart Page
